Regrettably, Insecticide is a Part 1 of 2 series that will likely never be able to be finished as part 2 is not available. You can do some research on your own if you want to know the whole story of why.

Part one provides a hybrid gameplay style consisting of action blasting platforming with point-and-click detective work. The mix of the two elements is done well and there are several cinematics that provide a game feel very similar to Psychonauts.

As a stand-alone game, it is decent. But without a part 2 to compete the story, it feels half-baked.

If you do play through this one and want to find out more of the Part 2 story, the developers posted the cinematics from the sequel on YouTube:

6.7/10 - It's really buggy...

This game is pretty fun. You are a 'bug' cop working to solve crimes. Has a very noir setting, which i love. The setting, graphics and voice acting are all good. Fluid controls and I didn't experience any issues. For $3 it's a good deal. Sometimes on sale for less. Look forward to grabbing ep. 2.

Worth $3.

I'm only 9 minutes in and I've probably encountered about a dozen insect puns.

It doesn't bug me at all.

After losing my savings in bitcoins, this was the only game I could afford.
